Conference play. It's a new beginning, a fresh start. Everything to this point is just the preface to the new season. That is not to say everything that has happened to this point is moot, just consider it the foreword to the novel. It is important information but conference play can make or break a team's season.
Just like a fresh snow, much like the one northeast Ohio received over the past few days, conference play offers every team a clean slate, a new canvas in which to tell their story. After a split of Ohio Dominican on Wednesday, the Storm travels to Hillsdale, MI for the first weekend series of the year. Saturday will feature a double-header starting at 1pm, followed by a single 9-inning game on Sunday, with first pitch starting at 12pm. Of course, weather could play a factor this weekend, which could mess with start times. Stay tuned to the Lake Erie information network for any changes to the schedule.
